Oumaran's coffee shop belonged to his dad, and it was opened 10 years ago. He made the necessary changes to it, through decoration and changing most of the machines, equipment, chairs and tables.
He also added "Hooka" (bubble pipes) and a billiard table/pool game known by some, which helped a lot in attracting a new generation in addition to those who used to come when his dad was handling the business.
Oumran is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua-Kiva partner, in order to buy a refrigerator and a washing machine which are necessary for his business. He hopes to improve his business and open a bigger cafe with several new activities.
